[ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke.
2:27am
[ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling.
2:28am
you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.
2:29am
2:30am
it's significant enough that we're taking every precaution. >> president obama on the record on the terror threat, shutting down nearly two dozen american embassies and consulates. a major development, charges filed nearly one year after terrorists attack and murdered four americans in benghazi, we are live with new information. okay. so handcuffed, locked in a coffin, thrown out of a plane, it is an amazing death-defying stunt. it was caught on camera. how's that for an adrenaline rush? oh, my goodness. >> he's got serious mommy issues, that's all i can say. something's up with that dude. >> i felt the same way.
2:31am
who would do this and why? >> welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. it's 30 minutes past the hour. we're hearing from president obama in shutting down the government in embassies and consulates overseas. this was on "the tonight show" the president said it was not the action to shut the embassies and consulates but he said the threat was significant enough that the administration felt it had to take precautions. >> it's a reminder through all the progress we've made, getting bin laden, putting al qaeda between afghanistan and pakistan back on its heels that, you know, this radical, you know, violent extremism is still out there. and we've got to stay on top of it. >> the president said americans should still go ahead and travel overseas, but use common sense.
2:32am
and heed the warnings. the president also defended the nsa's surveillance programs, insisting the sags not spying, just keeping track of phone numbers and e-mail addresses associated with terrorists. now to a big development into the investigation into last year's deadly attack on the u.s. diplomatic compound in benghazi, libya. sources tell cnn, federal authorities have filed the first criminal charges in connection with that attack. and a prominent figure in libya son that list. arwa damon is tracking all the developments. she is live in cairo for us so we have charges, but have any arrests been made? >> reporter: no, at this point, not yet. in fact, one of the main individuals you're referring to ahmed abu khattalah he is effectively out in the open. we spoke to him just a few months ago when we were in benghazi, we asked him about these various allegations that have begun to surface back then
2:33am
from a number of sources. he completely denies any direct involvement in the attack. and is perhaps something of an easy individual to charge because he has been placed on the scene. there have been various eyewitnesses who said he appeared to be commanding the attack itself. he himself does not deny being there, but he says he was simply directing traffic when he arrived onsite at the request of one of the key libyan commanders themselves. some intelligence analysts, libyan intelligence analysts, will say he in fact probably had nothing to do with it. that those who organized this attack, the key individuals were members of al qaeda and the islam islamic maghreb. and the vast majority have moved on and fighting in another battleground in syria itself. the fbi also earlier in the year released a number of photographs of individuals believed to have been involved. we had taken them to the streets in benghazi. no one had any information about
2:34am
them at this point so while the u.s., yes, has filed these charges, they do remain sealed. this does not necessarily mean that we're any closer to seeing justice and accountability at thing stage. add to all of this, of course, the incredibly dangerous situation, the security threat that exists in benghazis it does not men they have the ability to go out to these people. >> arwa damon live in kier row thank you. we also have breaking news twouvnt world's major airports. a massive fire has shut down the airport in nairobi, kenya, engulfing the entire terminal. it's likely to be closed for days we're told. it's not color what caused the blaze but authorities do not believe it was terrorism. i do believe as reading the reports, it was under construction, the entire terminal. >> they've got serious flight probl
2:35am
problems. a call from two top senators in egypt. john mccain and lindsay graham were there to meet with the interim government. both sides encouraged solving the crisis there. >> we also urged the release of political prisoners. we also urged strongly a national die naug, a national dialogue that is inconclusive of parties of the muslim brotherhood. at the same time, we expect the muslim brotherhood to refrain from violence. >> both senators said it's critical that the u.s. maintain its relationship with egypt. but the only way to do that is if the political situation, they say, is resolved soon. iran's president said the nuclear program is peaceful and that he's willing to negotiate with the u.s. over it. hasan rowhani said he's out to
2:36am
stop those talks. james dimaggio disappeared earlier this week after his home near san diego burned down. inside that home, authorities found the remains of a woman and a child. two of the women's children, 16-year-old hannah anderson and 8-year-old ethan are now missing. and their father had this message for dimaggio who had been a family friend. >> i can't fathom what you were thinking. the damage is done. i'm begging you to let my daughter go. you've taken everything else. hannah, we all love you very much. if you have a chance, you take it. you run. you'll be found. >> it's unclear at this hour if the body of the child found inside is that of ethan anderson. but his father, as you just
2:37am
heard, did not ask dimaggio to let his son go. >> all right. former president george w. bush is on the mend this morning after undergoing surgery to open up a blockage in his heart. the blockage was exposed during an annual physical. the procedure went perfectly. bush is expected to leave the hospital today and be back on his normal schedule by thursday. >> back out biking soon. former presidential candidate mitt romney is warning members of his own party, a government shutdown, he says, is not the answer. some congressional republicans have proposed not letting any spending bills pass until obama care is defunded. but romney told donors at a new hampshire republican event that the consequences of such a move could be dire. if soldiers don't get paid or seniors don't get their social security checks, they could hold it against the republican party in the future, mitt romney says. we're hearing now from an 11th accuser against san diego mayor bob filner.
2:38am
michelle tyler alleges filner asked her to engage in a sexual relationship with him in exchange for his help in a case of an injured former marine who had been battled with the v.a. tyler said filner asked her if he could spend time with her. and made clear that he wouldn't help if she didn't. >> i believe a person in power should not take advantage of a person. >> filner is currently in what he called intensive therapy and has said he does not believe he's guilty of sexual harassment. to new york city now, a new york city mayoral forum nearly turned ugly when anthony weiner referred to a republican rival as grandpa. the 16-year-olds who mocked weiner's texting scandal.
2:39am
weiner apparently made physical contact with his opponent. listen. >> i heard what you said. >> really? >> keep your hands off of me. don't put your hands on me ever again. >> ooh, ooh. >> you go. >> the candidate forum ironically sponsored by the arp. a 4-year-old boy was killed when he was swept away from a vehicle. his mother is still missing. that town is now in a disaster area. indra petersons is tracking that. what's the latest out there? >> the hardest thing to say, six inches of water, two feet of water taking away a car.
2:40am
